In this paper, we investigate the mechanism of soft error generation and propagation in asynchronous circuits which are implemented on FPGAs. The effects of the soft errors on Quasi-delay-insensitive (QDI) asynchronous circuits are analyzed. The results show that it is much easier to detect the soft error in asynchronous circuits implemented on FPGAs so that FPGAs can be reprogrammed, compared with traditional synchronous circuits.
